Medical & Life Sciences

TracePro offers life sciences and medical systems designers a sophisticated, 
multi-faceted simulation tool ideally suited to their needs. TracePro facilitates the 
opto-mechanical design and development process by communicating design elements and system performance across disciplines, such as optics, mechanics, materials, chemistry, and biology. This is an extremely important benefit to medical instrumentation and device designers who must effectively communicate system level specifications and design elements to both scientists and engineers.

Human Tissue 900 pixels

TracePro enables medical system designers to minimize the cost and time associated with iterative hardware prototyping and laboratory and 
clinical testing. Models are created by directly creating the solid geometry in TracePro or by importing from a lens design program or a CAD program. Source rays propagate through the model with portions of the flux of each ray allocated 
for absorption, specular reflection and transmission, fluorescence, and scattering. From the model, analyze:

  • Light distributions in illumination and imaging systems
  • Stray light, scattered light, and aperture diffraction
  • Throughput, loss, or system transmittance
  • Flux or power absorbed by surfaces and bulk media
  • Light scattering in biological tissue
  • Polarization effects
  • Fluorescence effects
  • Birefringence effects

Eye Model 900 Pixles

TracePro offers medical systems designers the confidence that the simulated design will predict the performance and accuracy of finished devices, such as:

  • Fluorescence spectroscopy
  • UV, VIS, NIR, IR spectroscopy
  • Flow cytometry
  • Micro arrays and plate readers
  • Nucleic acid amplification
  • Assay, cell, and tissue-based imaging
  • Confocal laser scanning and fluorescence microscopy
  • Medical imaging and endoscopy
  • In-Vitro/in-vivo diagnostics
  • Biosensors
  • Molecular detection: quantum dots, nanocrystals, luminescent reporters
  • Laser and LED surgical devices
  • Laser beam delivery systems for surgical instrumentation
  • Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) Detection
  • Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET)
